Currently i write with the very annoying little browser that is supported by real player. Of which we all know, and hate. The reason: I am forced by the cease function that has occured with IE and firefox, and opera. I usually use firefox, and only for some forms that require IE do I open it...
So the trouble: About two days ago my Ie refused me to use it, as soon as a page was entered into the url bar (i don't use homepages) the prgm gave an error, with unknown cause, and crashed.
so i tried the same with firefox, failed as well...
afterwhich much thinking wa able to realize realplayer. With realplayer i downloaded opera (an old favorite) which also produced the same glitch, as IE and Firefox. Obviously there is a problem with regular browsers. Because it has nothing to do with the internet, msn, and most chat prgms run, along with their once annoying ad pages. (which have become a breath of fresh internet, due to my lack of such lately)
anyone got any ideas, or reasons why this could happen?

btw, i've done everything you'd usually expect, checked settings, firewalls, proxies, spyware(and the like), versions, and service packs.
nothing so far seems to work

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
